West Hartford, CT symphonic deathcore outfit, Shadow of Intent, are unleashing their first official music video today for an all new track entitled ‘The Horror Within.’ The brand new track is taken from their forthcoming highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Reclaimer‘, which is set to be released on April 28, 2017.

The band had the following to say about the upcoming release:
“We feel this album is definitely our best work to date. We put our hearts and souls into this, to craft it into what we believe Shadow Of Intent truly is. Our pride in Reclaimer cannot properly be expressed, and we hope the fans enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.“

Shadow of Intent is a Halo inspired band that initially began as a two man project comprised of vocalist Ben Duerr and multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Wiseman, and released an EP entitled ‘Inferi Sententia‘ in July of 2014. The pair followed up the EP with their debut full length album, ‘Primordial,’ in January of 2016, which coupled with a steady stream of vocal and guitar based play through video clips, helped expand both their reach and their fan base by the tens of thousands. Shadow Of Intent was also the 2016 Readers Choice Breakout Band of the Year on Chugcore.net.
Moving into 2017, the band has grown from a two piece into a fully functioning tour ready unit, with Ben and Chris welcoming Federico Zuccarelli (Guitar), Keith Kohlhepp (Bass) and Matt Kohanowski (Drums) to the fold.
